This movie is set in Mississippi during the 1960's. It's about unlikely friendships developing despite societies rules and morals. It's about courage, doing the right thing, overcoming prejudice and racism when all odds are against you. It is about loyalty and sisterhood, and change.
I saw this movie with my sister and enjoyed it so much! I love the 60's time period in general, the fashion is so lovely. ^_^ The movie was very well done, with beautiful photography and with great actors like Emma Stone and Octavia Spencer. The story line was very interesting and also very eye-opening to the stark racism during that time. It was saddening to see, and convicting about how deep prejudice can go! It was a good reminder to say the least. The courage of the women in this film is very inspiring, at least to me! It had several touching moments, but was also full of humor so it makes for a great mix. I definitely recommend it and will be watching it again myself. It's a DVD I'd love to have on my shelf!
